The words Judeo-Christian are most often used to describe the biblically based religious, moral, and ethical heritage of certain western societies.
But there is a more complete definition of Judeo-Christianity:
"a belief system and lifestyle founded upon the principle of Sola Scriptura (by scripture/Bible alone). The Bible, in its entirety, is a complete and divinely inspired compilation of books written for revelation, instruction, and reproof.
God has a plan that has been consistent through history. This consistency is reflected in scriptures through God’s laws/teaching, the writings, the prophets, the gospels and epistles penned by faithful scribes. God's plan is revealed through explicit command and through stories about God's people. The personal and national examples of the faithful — Abel to Christ and his apostles — inform our understanding of God's purpose and His work in the world.
The Bible is a comprehensive life-map to both a good physical life and the only path to eternal life through Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Rock of our salvation, the Word, the Lamb of God.
Judeo-Christianity emerged into the English-speaking world during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of Great Britain in the late 1500s, as part of the non-conformist Reformation movement. This specific reformation realized that both the Old and New Covenant Scriptures were authoritative and superseded any decisions by councils of men (Matthew 4:4; John 17:17; Matthew 15:3-9).
However, this current revival of the "faith once delivered to the saints" in this century traces its beginning to what is sometimes called "primitive Christianity" — the original ‘Church’ that Christ founded and the apostles who continued in that faith.
So this is a channel to explore the truth of the Judeo Christian scriptures, from the perspective of the faith embraced by the early Christians.

People often wonder why we call ourselves, Judeo Christian. Well, we are not "traditional Christians" Catholics or evangelicals or charismatic Christians, nor are we Messianic Jews. We are people who were once part of mainstream Christianity, who came to accept the principle of Sola Scriptura, who reject the idea of "dispensationalism" as being without basis in scripture, and view the Hebrew and Greek scriptures as a unified whole. The scriptures alone offer us a hope of salvation through an everlasting covenant relationship with God the Father through the sacrifice of our Saviour. But this everlasting covenant does not nullify the national covenant that the Lord God of Israel made with his people. So if you are someone who wants to "label" ideas and people, then Judeo Christian is perhaps fitting, as it speaks to our love of God's word in its entirety.
